Luxury holidays in Port Vila
When to go
Port Vila is balmy year-round; just watch out for the rain from November to March. High season runs from May to July, so be prepared for a bit more bustle if you visit then.
PlanesBauerfield International Airport is a handy seven kilometres from the city centre; direct flights from Australasian cities including Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney and Nadi in Fiji touch down here.
BoatsSpeed boats (or rather motorised dinghies) are available for charter or scheduled trips, and make a zippy way to zoom to between islands when the weather is fair – just double-check any boat you board is fully kitted out with lifejackets.
AutomobilesThe main roads of Port Vila teem with minibuses ready to be flagged down; they can take you (slowly) across town, or further afield to Hideaway Island or the Mele Cascades.
